IE 7.0 displays ActiveX permission block when XslTransform is used

Description (last modified by Tom Trenka)

When running in IE 7.0, if the dojo.xml.XslTransform? is used, a security warning is given (yellow bar across the top of the page) that IE wants to run MSXML 5.0.

Apparently, Microsoft is supposed to be shipping MSXML 6.0 together with IE7 and they have marked MSXML 5.0 as "insecure" (still works fine in IE6).

I am using dojo 0.4.3 and I have fixed the problem by changing the file XslTransform?.js to rearrange the order in which the versions are checked:


var IS_IE =;


"Msxml2.DOMDocument.6.0", "Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0", "Msxml2.DOMDocument.5.0", "Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0", "MSXML2.DOMDocument", "MSXML.DOMDocument", "Microsoft.XMLDOM"

]; var ACTIVEX_FT_DOMS = [

"Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.6.0", "MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.3.0", "Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.5.0", "MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument.4.0"


"Msxml2.XSLTemplate.6.0", "MSXML2.XSLTemplate.3.0", "Msxml2.XSLTemplate.5.0", "Msxml2.XSLTemplate.4.0"



This seems to fix the problem for me.

I should also mention that once you've "allowed" that MSXML 5.0 version to run, then I haven't found a way to disable it and get the error to show again.

But it does show on IE7 where that warning has never been accepted/enabled and it's a problem because there are quite a few users out there who do not enable activex controls.
